Our Story

SUCCESSIONapp, LLC was formed to share our unique, transformational online solution for Board and Management Succession Planning with the world, at a time when turnover in these roles is expected to be 50% or more for the next 10 – 15 years.

It is also personal for me.

Over the years, as a consultant, I saw many organizations struggle to find new board members and others who experienced unexpected, rapid turnover with no future planning. As an Officer on the Board of Directors of a large organization myself, I didn’t want this to happen to us!

So, in helping our organization and my clients, I created a system to address these problems through proactive planning and evaluation. The system transformed into one powerful tool called SUCCESSIONapp®.It is transforming board succession planning all over the country.

Boards are preparing for succession rather than just waiting for it to happen. 

But I didn’t want to stop there. I knew that organizations would also be experiencing major turnover at their CEO and other management levels as well because of all the Baby Boomers who are retiring within the next 15 years.

So, I created a platform for Management Succession Planning in the SUCCESSIONapp® software to help organizations be prepared when that inevitable turnover occurs.

Our vision at SUCCESSIONapp, LLC is that every organization has prepared, effective, and diverse leaders.

To your success,

Yvonne Evers Signature
